All trainings will be recorded and the presenters can help with any questions you may have about their sessions.

Cayuga’s Office of Accessibility Resources staff are offering virtual trainings on common accessibility issues that may be identified by Ally or that non-teaching staff may encounter in their work.



SUNY has entered into an agreement with Deque Systems Inc. to provide accessibility training across all SUNY campuses through August 2024 at no cost to SUNY employees.

Deque University is an online digital accessibility training platform that provides comprehensive training on a wide variety of topics, including accessibility basics, web accessibility, document accessibility, and accessibility testing.

The full curriculum contains over 30 courses that are valuable to web developers, content editors, and all faculty and staff who create online materials (see the Deque University website for details).

The courses are online, self-paced, and take from 30 minutes to 6 hours to complete. Most courses will take 60-90 minutes. Courses are designed for a wide range of technical skills, from easy to advanced. Each course’s Introduction page provides information on the primary intended audience, technical level, suggested prerequisites, and duration.

Courses are arranged into several curricula, including Web Accessibility, Document Accessibility, Native Mobile Apps, and Customer Service for People with Disabilities. Courses include quizzes that, when successfully completed, provide a course certificate. It is recommended that everyone complete the “Accessibility Fundamentals – Disabilities, Guidelines, and Laws” course first, then take additional courses that meet your interests and technical skill level.

Any questions regarding Deque University and access requests should be directed to:
